GovInn Senior Researcher, Cori Wielenga, participated in the fourth of the four-part series on ‘African perspectives on peacebuilding‘ series hosted by Wilton Park and supported by the African Leadership Centre, African Peacebuilding Network and Carnegie Corporation from 20-21 March in Abuja, Nigeria.

Previous events in this series have assessed the development of African approaches to peacebuilding in response to the changing dynamics of conflict, and the emergence of new conflict actors, on the continent. The conference drew upon the evolution of these global trends, addressing how they interact with and impact conflict dynamics and peacebuilding in Africa, its broader ramifications, and explore the options with regard to Africa’s vision and role – along with its international partners in shaping the future of global peacebuilding.
